Ginkgo Tree

An article by David Brooks on November 21, 2008


Ginkgo Tree trunk surrounded by leaves

Since today is my last day at Asbury Theological Seminary I went out yesterday to take some photos of the campus. For the photo of the week I wanted to get something iconic of the campus. I took shots of steeples, famous buildings… and I settled on this one. That might seem strange, except that everyone I know has taken photos in front of these trees while they are in full bloom. There weren’t, however, many people taking photos of them once the leaves were on the ground.

My friend Rob says that from a distance the leaves look like fake cheese powder, and I can definitely see where he’s coming from. To me I think the color of them is absolutely gorgeous. I had tried to take cuttings of them so that I could take some saplings with me in the move to Michigan, but it didn’t work out so well.
